Great breakfast and lunch, affordable prices, lots of seating space both inside and outside. Nice coffees and ice teas, easy comfort food such as crepes, paninis, pastries, yogurt parfait, granola, pizzas, sandwiches, etc. Very long and diverse menu. Highly recommend as an easy, non-pretentious option

We stumbled upon Aroma as we were wandering through La Jolla looking for somewhere to have a late lunch. We were pretty much starving and would have eaten anywhere, so we were pleasantly surprised with Aroma. Like many places in San Diego, they have fancy...More
